I'm not good at narrative; I'm really a gag writer, and that comes from being in the newspaper comic strip world for a while in college.

I probably would have gone the M.F.A. route except I was a dad at 19, and it made more sense to go to work for a newspaper and support a kid that way. But the funny thing is, that detour became the most important step in my developing as a novelist.
Some story appears in some newspaper that says that somebody said X, Y, and Z, and a customer says, I don't understand what they're talking about - we're running that product, we've been using it for five years, what are they talking about?
I believe the Times is a great newspaper, but a profoundly fallible one.
My grandfather was a newspaper publisher and his paper had all the comics in NYC, so some of my earliest memories are of reading the family paper and heading straight for the comics insert.
I think I'm a born storyteller. Inspiration is all around me. I can read a newspaper article and come up with an idea for a book.
